These products are ground to help the fermentation and put in glass or terracotta containers. Alcohol is then added and then ripened for anything from a couple of weeks to a year. The finished product is a white-yellow or grey cream with a very strong and persistent odour. The taste is very savoury and intense. Generally, this product is heated and eaten spread on a slice of bread.
